What is CoolSculpting?

Coolsculpting is a treatment that can reduce fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is the world’s first and only fat reduction procedure that employs cold to eliminate unwanted fat cells, resulting in the reduction of the fat layer.  It is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that lowers the temperature of the anatomy to minus 10 degrees Celsius. At this temperature, fat cells are injured, and ultimately fat cell death occurs.  The body metabolizes these fat cells through the lymphatic system and eliminates them from your body through waste.  The result is a permanent reduction of the fat layer and the procedure is safe and effective. You will experience no recovery time, you can return to your daily activities immediately following the treatment.

Slim Studio is one of the few facilities in Atlanta that offers DualSculpting.  Dual sculpting requires multiple CoolSculpting machines which allow us to complete the Coolsculpting treatments in half the time.  Your time is valuable, and we respect it.

CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing procedure and is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—you can truly slim down with Cool Sculpting.

CoolSculpting Candidates

Several factors are taken into consideration to determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. These include your weight and the type of fat deposit that you are concerned with. Also taken into consideration is your lifestyle; your diet and exercise do play a role in determining if the treatment is right for you. CoolSculpting is approved for specific parts of the body. During your consultation and assessment at Slim Studio, you will learn if the areas you’re concerned with fit the treatment profile of a good candidate for CoolSculpting.


If you are either at your ideal weight or close to your ideal weight, you could be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. “Close to your ideal weight” would generally mean that you are within 30 lbs. or 13.6 kg. of your ideal weight. This is not a “hard and fast rule” but more of a general guideline, as peoples’ bodies come in all shapes and sizes and individuals can carry their weight very differently. Gender can also play a role in the decision about candidacy.

Diet & Exercise

Having a healthy diet can increase your likelihood of being a good candidate for CoolSculpting. In addition, regular exercise is definitely a plus when considering a treatment like CoolSculpting.

Your Fat Deposit(s)

CoolSculpting treats subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat is soft, pinchable, pliable fat that lies directly under the skin. CoolSculpting does not treat Visceral fat. Visceral fat is “deep fat” that is stored further underneath the skin than subcutaneous fat. It’s a form of gel-like fat that is actually wrapped around the major organs including the liver, pancreas and kidneys. During your CoolSculpting consultation and assessment at Slim Studio, we can determine if you have subcutaneous fat that is treatable with CoolSculpting.

Areas of Treatment

CoolSculpting is FDA cleared to treat specific areas of the body. You could be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if your areas of concern are any of the approved areas for treatment. The abdomen is the most frequently CoolSculpted area of the body. The upper abdomen and lower abdomen are both FDA approved for treatment and can be treated separately or at the same time. The flanks are the #2 area in demand for CoolSculpting treatment. Both men and women can have an excess fat deposit under their chin which can be minimized with a CoolSculpting procedure. Many women are concerned with excess fat in their inner thighs and stubborn bulges in their outer thighs. CoolSculpting can even reduce fat in the area of the knee. Other areas that women may be concerned with that are treatable with CoolSculpting are arms, back, the area under the bra line, the area in front of the under arm and the area directly beneath the crease of the buttocks.

Body Contouring in Atlanta

Today, it has become easier than ever to eradicate that persistent, unwanted fat from your body, without the use of needles, knives or anesthesia. CoolSculpting has been FDA approved for the nonsurgical fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. It is the top non-surgical body sculpting procedure. Over one million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed worldwide.

After your CoolSculpting body contouring treatment in Atlanta, you will not need to concern yourself with any special or restrictive diets, exercise program, or supplements. CoolSculpting works by safely breaking down the non-essential fat cells that lay beneath the skin, by way of exposing them to very cold temperatures. This ingenious process is known as Cryolipolysis. Once the fat cells reach a certain temperature, they die off. At this point, these cells are naturally metabolized and eliminated from the body over the course of the following several weeks. Because CoolSculpting exclusively targets the unwanted fat cells, nearby skin and tissue remain unaffected.

CoolSculpting Procedure

CoolSculpting treatment is generally performed without the use of anesthetics or pain medication. Once you and your practitioner have selected which areas to focus the CoolSculpting treatment on, a special vacuum device gently draws the tissue in that area up between two cooling panels. At Slim Studio in Atlanta, the CoolSculpting procedure uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate unwanted fat. The body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the affected cells from your body. The treated area may feel cold for the first few minutes. This is completely normal. As your body becomes acclimated to the temperature this cold sensation will diminish. Many patients are able to relax or even read during their treatments. Typically a CoolSculpting treatment can be done in about an hour.

During Recovery

Following your CoolSculpting procedure, you will be able to return home. You should be able to pick up your everyday routines, without the concern of taking downtime to recover. Your results will not be instantly visible, but rather will appear gradually, approximately over the course of the next 2-4 months. Additional CoolSculpting treatments may be discussed if you find that you desire further fat reduction.
